Interviewee Occupation: Painter; San Diego, CA has had the pleasure of hosting two international expositions in the 20th century, Panama-California Exposition from 1915-17 and the California Pacific International Exposition from 1935-36. These two international expositions showcased San Diego, California to the rest of the United States and the world spurring artistic and building and architectural booms before, during, and after each expo. These oral histories represent and highlight the large influx of creative men and women, their work, and their architectural and artistic influences during these two boom periods that have shaped and curated the artistic and architectural landscapes we see in San Diego today. In the overall context of California history, these oral histories bring to light lesser known pieces of San Diego history, as well as expose the differences and similarities with the history of waterfront cities such as Monterey, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Note: the San Diego Museum of Art Oral History Collection is cited in the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art.
